The book goes as far as to provide features such as sections to Think About and Discuss, questions to Ask and Discuss, along with scripts as Conversation Starters. For educators that are ready for change in schools, Meaningful Conversations prepares a table before you to feast upon comprehensive and transformative school improvement"--
